School Council School councils are an excellent way for parents to get involved in their child`s education. Our school has an elected school council that is an important forum for involving all members of the school community in issues that affect the education of students. The school council is made up of an elected committee of parents, staff and student representatives, appointed community members, the principal, and a general membership which includes all parent of children attending the school. The school council advises the principal on a variety of issues and activities relating to student achievement, curriculum goals and priorities, school budget priorities, school safety, renovation plans, after school activities, and criteria for selection of new principals.
SAC meets once a month during the school year. Meeting times are posted in the monthly school newsletter, the exterior sign and on our school website. The meetings are usually held in the school library.
Elections for the Executive positions are held in October. The School Council is made up of 15 voting members and other non voting members who help on committees. All parents of Islington JMS children are encouraged to attend the monthly meetings. Council members are also encouraged to bring friends to the meetings who are not familiar with council meetings in an effort to broaden our base of parent support.
The School Council Nomination form is to be used by a parent/guardian of a child attending Islington JMS, to nominate themselves to one of the 15 positions of elected voting parent members.
The Principal and Chairs of Committees report on previous and upcoming events. Islington JMS is in Ward 3 of the Toronto District School Board . Ward meetings are held regularly during the school year and are open to all interested parents.
After formal reports, there is an opportunity during the meeting to ask questions or discuss issues of general concern.
